{ Who are you choosing to be around?  9.8.15 }

“As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.”  Proverbs 27:17                                                                                                       _____________________________________________________________________

Hey y’all! Welcome to the lovely month of September!! Nice cool weather, plenty of sunshine, warm pleasant happiness. But when September comes, something else comes that isn’t as well, pleasant. School. Studying, essays, drama, etc. Today I am going to be talking a little bit about the drama aspect of school.

Even though I am homeschooled, I still have to listen to all of my friends talk about drama, and I have been to public school before,so I know all about it; and lets be real, middle school is like drama 101. Middle school is a crucial time. Some of the friends that have been your bff for like ever, are turning in to your worst enemies, and it brings you down. You have to find new friends, and sometimes, most of your schoolmates are turning to wrong decisions. People who seem so sweet say nasty things behind your back, or sometimes your friends will bring you down. Its very, very, hard. You need to choose who you hang out with very wisely. If your friends, even just jokingly, are making your confidence level plummet to the lowest point on earth, you may need to consider finding other people to hang out with or taking a break from hanging out with them so frequently. They may not be trying to hurt you, but it still hurts anyways. You can also try telling them about it. They might be able to fix it, because they might not realize that they were doing it. If you are in a situation where your friends are doing extremely wrong things, that could harm them, you need to find some other people to hang out with. Don’t just ditch them, it’s a gradual thing. Find other Christians to hang out with. (I promise, its the best thing ever y’all.) Find people who bring you up, instead of knocking you down. You can still be nice to your friends who do wrong things, the best thing to do is to pray for them. You never know what they go through. Mathew 17:20 says “Prayer moves mountains.” Which is truer than true. Don’t give up if you’re facing friendship troubles, because Jesus is literally the best friend ever, and he’ll never leave your side. Your problems are temporary, God is eternal.

I hope this devotion has helped, and if any of you are having trouble give it to God. You can also private message me if you need any advice.

xoxo,

Sydney
